Cathelco Secures Diamond Offshore Deal

Cathelco has secured an order to supply marine growth prevention systems (MGPS) for the Ocean Valiant, a semi-submersible drilling unit operated by Diamond Offshore.

The Ocean Valiant is currently operating in the Janice field located in the Central North Sea, approximately 175 miles east-south-east of Aberdeen.

The systems provided by Cathelco will protect the pipework connected to port and starboard seachests against blockages caused by the growth of barnacles and mussels which can impair the efficiency of associated equipment.

This will be achieved by installing copper and aluminium anodes in two electrolysis tanks with pipework connected to the seachests in order to dose the water flowing through the system.

“Cathelco systems have proved their effectiveness in preventing marine growth on semi-submersibles and offshore platforms operating in the North Sea and around the world,” said Scott Rose of Cathelco Grampian, based near Aberdeen to serve the Scottish offshore oil industry.
